They can either agree to blood testing, to give baseball some shot at detecting human growth hormone, or the would-be cheaters will start streaming through the loophole like it's Interstate 70 on a clear Sunday morning.

They can either agree to blood testing, or they will be right back where they were in 1999 and 2000, with many of them faced with a decision they'd rather not face: Take a performance-enhancing drug to keep up with the cheaters, or risk losing their jobs.
